The Danube-Carpathian region, titled The Green Heart of Europe, is charasteristic for it´s immense natural hertiage and high natural diversity. The region is home to two-thirds of Europe´s large carnivore population and one of the last wild rivers, untouched wetlands and old-growth beech forests can be found here.
Although almost 23% of Slovakia´s land cover is dedicated to protected areas the overall trend in most populations of fauna and flora species is decreasing. Out of the 548 known vertebrat species 153 are endangered.
To improve these negative trends we mainly do concrete conservation management actions in the field. Since our establishment we have realised projects for the conservation of concrete species such as voles (Microtus oeconomus mehelyi), common kingfishers (Alcedo atthis), sand martins (Riparia riparia), European bee-eaters (Merops apiaster), common swifts and bats.
